    NEW BRAVOS, TX (WCMH) An Army veteran in Arizona with a terminal illness has a unique final wish. Lee Hernandez is currently in hospice care in his home. According to the Arizona Republic, he has continuous strokes that affect his vision and cognitive abilities. Doctors can do nothing more for him except make him comfortable. Lee served more than 18 years in the Army, including a tour in Iraq. Earlier this week, he asked his wife to let him hold his phone, in case someone calls, according to a post on the Arizona Veterans Forum.

LARRY KLAYMAN: All I remember reading every time Larry Klaymans name (from Judicial Watch fame) was mentioned on this siteyear after year during the Obama regimes highest power arcswas how impotent and incompetent Klayman was, that he was just a money-grabbing nothing-burger who NEVER consummated any of his lawsuits and FOIA requests against the GD Clintons or the other idiot liberals.

    I need to vent. I got rid of facebook last night because my leftist friends where unhinged about Trump. Trump is going to take away all rights from gays, ashamed of our county, how dare anybody vote for him, they all leaving the county and etc. This is worse then when Bush was in office. In the end Trump won they need to get over it. I did not even respond to anybody because it would have been a bloodbath of friends lost. Anybody else experience this on facebook?
  • Citi Is Suing AT&T Over The Word Thanks

    Last week, AT&T launched a new loyalty program dubbed AT&T Thanks, offering rewards to customers, especially those who bundle together wireless and pay-TV services from the company. This morning, Citi fired back at the Death Star, alleging that AT&T is stomping all over Citis ThankYou trademark. For several years, Citi has had trademarks protecting its ThankYou from Citi credit card rewards program, while AT&T more recently filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its AT&T Thanks mark. That AT&T mark was published for opposition this week, and it looks like Citi has a problem with it. Citi has...
  • Trump: I Want To Thank The Special Interests and The Lobbyists For Driving My Numbers

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump sarcastically thanked “the special interests and the lobbyists” for driving his numbers up at a press conference in Jupiter, FL on Tuesday. Trump began by saying, “One of the things I’m most happy about is that the turnout has been just massive, for every week. … No matter where you go, it’s records. I think it’s actually the single biggest story in politics today. It’s what’s happening at the booth. The tremendous number of people that are coming out to vote. Some of the states are getting — in fact, one has 102% increase over four...

    I just wanted to say Hi to all and wish you blessings in 2016. I miss being here. Things have been a bit upside-down in my life, including the loss of over half a dozen family members, and having a close friend, who is like family to me, become very ill with little time left. I've been spending precious little time in prayer, including my prayer group, but please know I haven't forgotten you or your intentions when I do- even if I don't know specifically what they are, I know that G-d in His Infinite Wisdom, does. Please pray...

    We've all seen demonstrations over the years where protesters burn the American flag while police stand helplessly by. I know a couple of cops who have told me they wept in frustration at being unable to rescue the flag for being desecrated. On Tuesday night outside the venue in Milwaukee where the GOP debate was being held, several hundred demontrators engaged in a partisan protest against Republicans. A few of the demonstrators set fire to the American flag, at which point, Milwaukee police officers moved in, extinguished the fire consuming the flag, and then did something quite unexpected; they reverently...

    Hello, everyone... I am very much in need of prayers at this time. The Lord has given me a great deal of loss: physically; financially; emotionally; in my career; most of all, in those whom I love who have passed on, or are ill. Whatever He chooses to do in my life, how He chooses to use me, please pray for me for strength and healing of my heart. I thank Him for those around me; for loving and watching over me; for giving me kind people in my life- even when He decides to call them home. I thank...

    I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers in the last 2 weeks. My Mom passed on May 24 and we laid her to rest on May 29. Driving up to CT, my car started to fail, the air suspension system was tired, not knowing where it was failing, but on the way home, the warning alarm went off every 25 miles. When I got to Church the day after my mom's funeral, I got a flat tire on the highway that for some reason (THE GRACE OF GOD!) held out until I was safely in the...

    Just wanted to say "thanks" again to all who have prayed in the past for my Buster, and those who still may be doing so. It's been probably about 8 weeks or so since the last surgery, which did go well. Since then I have had him on a new "cocktail" of natural tinctures of various immune-boosting and anticancer herbs and such, along with his normal pain medicine from the vet for his arthritis, and I also give him cold laser treatments for the arthritis as well. I finally got the cocktail of the natural stuff right, I believe, to...

    Meet TNA Impact Wrestling star and veteran Chris Melendez: a man who served his country, lost a leg for it, and then became a pretty badass professional wrestler. On Memorial Day, he will walk in Washington, D.C.s National Memorial Day Parade. Melendez, 27, had two dreams growing up: Serve the country he loves, and become a professional wrestler. The son of a Vietnam veteran, Melendez grew up in New York and felt the call to service after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. He was only 17 years old when he joined the Army. Seventeen, as in not a legal...

    http://blogs.ancientfaith.com ^ | April 17, 2015 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    Do we cooperate in our salvation? Do our efforts make a difference? These questions lie at the heart of a centuries-old religious debate in Christianity. Classically, the Protestant reformers said, No, to these questions, arguing that we are saved solely and utterly by Gods grace, His unmerited favor. The Catholic Church replied that faith without works is dead and that faith alone is insufficient. This debate, with various twists and turns, has continued down through the centuries of Christian culture. At one point, there were complaints of cheap grace, where the exaltation of pure grace over works led to a...

    Congressional Republicans are challenging several health regulations, with one senator suggesting restaurants shouldn't have to make their employees wash their hands after bathroom visits. Such restaurants would have to prominently disclose their decision, and then would probably would go out of business, said newly elected GOP Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina. But they should have that choice, he said. Tillis raised the issue when speaking Monday to the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington. Restaurant chains such as Starbucks should be able to skip obligatory hand-washing by workers, he said, "as long as they post a sign" and take other...
